"Be sure to drive over to..." Recife Favorite Tip by kathyceo

Recife General: 12 reviews and 9 photos

Favorite thing: Be sure to drive over to Olinda, a chaming old world community next door to Recife. The churches, narrow streets, old style architecture, and artist community encourage strolling around, and looking back on the bustling city of Recife along the coastline.

Fondest memory: Strolling in the park in nearby Olinda, eating from the booths set up on a weekend night, looking at the wares for sale, listing to the pick-up band play their hearts out.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
